Fort Lauderdale (Fla.) Cardinal Gibbons standout Jeremy Longo is one of the top defensive end…
Lauderdale DE has USF Interested
"I've been getting ready for spring, hitting the weights and conditioning," Longo said. "I had a good year last year and hopefully this one will be even better."
The South Florida Bulls have noticed his hard work and recently offered him a scholarship. Last week he was sent an offer in the mail.
"I've been texting with Larry Scott." Adding, "I don't know too much about them right now, but I'm going to try and take an unofficial visit to Tampa after my spring practice ends."
Longo has had a busy week, not only was he offered by USF, but also Arkansas, Virginia an Wake Forest. Add those to the stack he has already collected including Iowa, Pitt, Wisconsin and South Carolina. With so many options to choose from Jeremy has three factors he will base his decision on.
"First of all it has to be the best fit for myself, a place I feel comfortable. Secondly I look at coaching, the entire staff. Third is the school itself. The education and academics is important along with the facilities."
Right now Jeremy says its too hard to name a top 5 because the offers have been consistently rolling in. He wanted to commit early, but now it looks like he will have to push it back.
"I was thinking about doing it this summer. Then I got more and more offers. I'll wait until they slow down, pick a top 5, make some visits and possibly decide this fall. I'm not really sure because there have been a bunch of schools jumping in recently."
If he decides to make a visit to USF after spring practice then the Bulls will be considered a major player for this elite athlete from the Miami area. With the departure of Offensive Coordinator Rod Smith to WVU this offseason, it means that rookie Coach Larry Scott will have the pressure of recruiting Longo from one of the most competitive recruiting areas in the country. Its important to make an impact and landing Jeremy Longo would make a statement that the Bulls can win recruiting battles against some of the top schools in the nation in the top district in the nation.
